Brief Description 

    

Bablas.AC is a macro virus that reaches computers in an infected Word 97 document, with a DOC extension. Then, it infects the Word template (NORMAL.DOT file) and spreads to all the Word documents generated with it.

Bablas.AC activates before 9 p.m. and its effects are more irritating than damaging:

  • It beeps after an infected document has been opened.
  • It displays the text Udah kena virus macros when the Word macros are accessed.
  • It displays the text I LOVE SOMETHING ERROR ! when the About Microsoft Word option is selected in the Help menu in the Word 97 window.
  • It modifies some Word options.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Bablas.AC activates on a random day but always before 9pm. When it carries out its infection, it shows a large number of symptoms:

  • It changes the title of the Word window to: Bpp Hacker is now activating - (I Don´t mean to disturb).
  • It displays the text Udah kena virus macros when the Macro option is selected in the Tools menu in the Word window.
  • It displays the following warning when the About Microsoft Word option is selected in the Help menu in the Word 97 window:
    Qun katawon walataqun kalaler.
    I LOVE SOMETHING ERROR !
  • It emits several beeps and displays the following text:

    Virus lokal mulai menyerang...waspadalah! --asli buatan FE-UGM-.

Before carrying out the actions described, Bablas.AC checks that the time on the system clock is earlier than 9 p.m.
